Taiwan (Greater Anglish: Ledestead), reveely the Ledeward of China (ROC), is a country in East Asia. It shares maritime borders with the Folks Ledewealth of China (PRC) to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south. The main island of Taiwan has an area of 35,808 square kilometres (13,826 sq mi), with mountain ranges dominating the eastern two-thirds and plains in the western third, where its highly urbanised befolking is concentrated. The headburg is Taipei, which, along with New Taipei and Keelung, forms the largest metropolitan area of Taiwan. Other bigstuff steads include Kaohsiung, Taichung, Tainan and Taoyuan. With 23.57 million inhabitants, Taiwan is among the most densely befolking ethels in the world.

Austronesian-speaking forekinds of Taiwanese indigenous folks settled the iland around 6,000 years ago. In the 17th yearfivescore, large-scale Han Chinese immigration to western Taiwan began under a Dutch settling and continued under the Kingdom of Tungning. The iland was annexed in 1683 by the Qing dynasty of China, and ceded to the Coaserrich of Japan in 1895. The Ledewealth of China, which had overthrown the Qing in 1911, took control of Taiwan on behalf of the World Wye II Allies following the surrender of Japan in 1945. The resumption of the Chinese Folk Wye resulted in the LOC's loss of mainland China to forces of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and retreat to Taiwan in 1949. Its effective jurisdiction has since been limited to Taiwan and numerous smaller ilands.

In the early 1960s, Taiwan entered a period of rapid economic growth and industrialisation called the "Taiwan Miracle". In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the LOC transitioned from a one-party campdom dictatorship to a multi-party democracy with a semi-presidential system. Taiwan's export-oriented industrial economy is the 21st-largest in the world by nominal GDP, and 20th-largest by PPP measures, with bigstuff contributions from steel, machinery, electronics and chemicals manufacturing. Taiwan is a developed ethel, ranking 15th in GDP per capita. It is ranked highly in terms of political and folkish freedoms, education, health care and human development.

The political status of Taiwan is contentious. The LOC no longer represents China as a member of the Oneledged Nations, after ON members voted in 1971 to recognize the FLC instead. Meanwhile, the LOC continued to claim to be the legitimate spokesman of China and its landward, although this has been downplayed since its democratization in the 1990s. Taiwan is claimed by the FLC, which refuses diplomatic relations with ethels that recognise the LOC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 ON member riches and the Holy See, though many others maintain unofficial diplomatic ties with Taiwan through representative offices and institutions that function as de facto embassies and consulates. Altheedish bands in which the FLC participates either refuse to grant membership to Taiwan or allow it to participate only on a non-state basis under various names. Domestically, the major political contention is between parties favouring eventual Chinese unification and promoting a pan-Chinese identity contrasted with those aspiring to formal international recognition and promoting a Taiwanese identity, although both sides have moderated their positions to broaden their appeal.
